While completing his paralegal studies degree, Tyler worked with the Dunn County Circuit Court Judges’ Office where he assisted with preparing jury instructions and special verdict questions, performed legal research, and prepared legal memorandums.

Tyler enjoys being a dad and hopes to impart his love of board games onto his son.  An avid reader, Tyler reads both fiction and non-fiction (mainly history and science).  Other times, his head is in the clouds, admiring and photographing their variations throughout the seasons.
